Certain species of mosquitoes carry WNV, which, when transmitted to people, can cause West Nile encephalitis, an infection that can result in an inflammation of the brain. Use a repellent with DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide), permethrin, picaridin (KBR 3023), IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus [p-methane 3, 8-diol (PMD)] according to the instructions on the product label.

The department says most people who are bitten do not get sick and the people who do usually suffer a mild flu-like illness.
In order to test for West Nile virus, the mosquitoes must be alive. Not everyone infected with West Nile Virus will become ill. In some individuals, severe illness including meningitis or encephalitis, or even death, can occur.
